      I hope It's a good read GB, I am sure that you will post an appraisal of the tome after you have read it.

      Cheers

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.

            Who knows... Probably best would be to learn read russian although it`s not easy language. But this would be helpfull in research etc. as russian historians have quite different way of thinking and all different opinion on Napoleonic era events than in the West (Borodino is good example for this).

                    All I can suggest is check through Amazon and see if they might not have a
                    copy, you never know.

                      Did this first thing today and found nothing.

                      Now I have the ISBN.

                      Wonder how much this puppy is?

                      • Well...I checked with the two links provided as well as 8 Russian book dealers - nothing.

                        I did find a site in Russia but wasn't sure of the cost. I found an American site that had it listed, but it was for $141.
                        Cheers!

                          • Just a heads up guys these two books are the same as I just came
                            to find out name and cover are different but they are the same.

                            • Since we seem to be on a Russian kick at the moment I thought I would throw this out there.

                              Hopefully it comes through!
